I would like for them to add more stores in Okemah. I would like some clothing stores that are reasonably priced. What I like about Okemah is that it is a small town and the food is good.

Great, small town to be in along with all the wonderful people that live here. If you're not a big city type of person then this rural town is the place for you.
We live in the country outside of the zip-code city limits. We love the area and the small community of Mason. There is not much to do locally, but the land and small community feel of it is a perfect fit for my family. We are an outdoor oriented family, so the public access to the WMA and state parks that are close is ideal.
